Research into our climate system is a young science: only in the 20th century has it become possible to explain the complex processes of the Earth's atmosphere. Since then, climate research has become a global science, with many connections to other disciplines. The specialist literature on climate published by Springer reflects this interdisciplinary spectrum. Experts, scientists and students will find first-class books and journals addressing both scientific and socio-political issues. Well-known publications include the journals Climatic Change and Climate Dynamics and the Handbook of Climate Change Adaptation.
